A thought of the day by my childhood friend Sean…
Many of us ENABLE people especially loved ones under the title “love”.
To enable is to handicap the person through our own weakness to do what is right.
When we don’t make our children take care of their responsibilities such as kids we cripple them.
When Grandparents spend more time with grandkids while mom and dad are out hanging we cripple our kids.
When you give them money even though you know they blew their paycheck on lottery tickets and smokes we cripple our kids.
In short when we FAIL to make our children deal with THEIR consequences for THEIR actions we cripple them.
It takes strength to do the right thing it takes weakness to enable.
ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH?
